Certainly you know that the bathing suits you’ll see at the beach this summer, along with the sand buckets, shovels, beach rafts, towels, and tank tops cost customers anywhere from $5 to $50 a-piece. Yet, if you had the right contacts, you could buy them direct from their manufacturer for less than the price of an ice cream.

This week, let’s talk about trading those bathing suits and beach towels for airline tickets… for trips to Paris… for long weekends with your spouse or friend in wine country or beach-side… any Great Escape you want.

Several decades ago, a family in Arkansas figured out how to buy items at a low price abroad and sell them here in the U.S. at half the price of their competitors. Today they own one of the most powerful and influential corporations in the world and are worth nearly $90 billion. They are the Waltons… the founders of Wal-Mart.

Yet, unlike Wal-Mart, you don’t need fancy stores, employees or even website. You can start on a much smaller scale, importing products in your spare time. Selling them at deep discounts and profiting from the difference, using sites like Amazon and eBay to earn your first flight or paid-for vacation.

Not sure what you’d import first?

Here are a few items I saw on sale this week to get you started with ideas…

  • Bathing suits
  • Wireless cell phone chargers
  • Travel gear
  • Tablets
  • Essential oils
  • iPad cases

We’re going to talk more about this summer income opportunity this week and what you need to get started, so stay tuned.
